My mom has constantly suffered from the most brutal anxiety.
Back when my sister and I were younger, my mom did not prefer us leaving the lake house at all.
She never went to our athletic games or dance contests. She never took us to the grocery store or a birthday celebration either! My sister and I did not understand what was actually going on with our mother until we happened to be much older. My mom started seeing a therapist regularly after she got a divorce. The therapist told my mom that she had extreme anxiety. The medical professional recommended quite a few ways to help with the anxiety. One thing that the medical professional recommended happened to be meditation. My mom does not prefer when things are totally still and quiet, so meditation did not work well. The medical professional recommended medical marijuana and my mom was especially surprised. I easily told my mom that several medical professionals prescribe medical marijuana for crucial anxiety. It wasn’t a surprise, since medical marijuana happens to be legal in our state. My mom was fairly concerned about everyone in the community learning that she was using drugs. I reminded my mom that marijuana wasn’t a drug if it was medically prescribed by the medical professional. The reasoning was certainly enough to get my mom to try medical marijuana. I went to a dispensary with my mom and they let me tag-along when she went through the door to talk with a budtender. The budtender was completely helpful and knowledgeable and gave my mom a bunch of interesting things to try to assist with the anxiety. The budtender recommended several weird medical marijuana strains. One of those strains is OG Kush. OG Kush is now my mom’s preferred medicine these days.
